Fedora 14 : libuser-0.56.18-3.fc14 (2011-0316)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 51646


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Fixes default userPassword value on LDAP; note that this affects only accounts for which the password was not changed later. In addition to installing this update, maintainers of LDAP servers used for authentication should review their LDAP directory for unexpected plaintext userPassword values.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected libuser package.
